Of course, concerned Malaysians are skeptical because we have this culture of denying anything when it is inconvenient to admit them.
So, now Yayasan Guru Malaysia Bhd, the organiser of the event in which the guidelines were said to have been distributed, had to come out to do some damage control by saying that there was no bad intention in the distribution of the guidelines during a seminar on how to spot lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender tendencies among school children.
Of course, nobody has any bad intention. Even a murderer has no bad intention, he just wanted to get rid of the other guy for being an inconvenience or whatever, but certainly no bad intention.
According to the guidelines, LGBT tendencies could be spotted among boys wearing tight-fitting V-neck T-shirts and carrying large sling bags. And among girls who enjoy the company of their own gender.
Now according to the guidelines, my former boss could be said to have LBGT tendencies too, because at one time he liked to wear tight-fitting shirts and long pants.
Fortunately for him, he wasn't wearing tight-fitting V-neck T-shirts and didn't carry a large sling bag around. But at his age, wouldn't a large sling bag or V-neck T-shirt be too much of a giveaway?
Well, my former boss was just following the more fashionable trend then.
Now too, according to the guidelines, practically all Chinese youths in China have LGBT tendencies because many of them like to carry large sling-bags and I think they also love tight fitting pants too. I am not sure about the V-neck T-shirts though.
And which girls don't also enjoy the company of their own gender?
